Jessener Theater Workshop Head Had Been Here a Year Editor's note: Barnswallows submit the following tribute to Mr. Frederick Jessner, who died suddenly June 8. The college regrets the loss of Mr. Frederick Jessner, director of the Theatre Workshop and Barnswallows. Mr. Jessner died suddenly at his home in Cam- bridge June 8 after a severe heart attack. He is survived by his wife and two daughters, one now living in California and the other in Germany. Mr. Jessner had a brilliant ca- reer as actor and director in both Germany and Switzerland before coming to this country in 1940. He was honored at that time by a fellowship to the Yale Drama School, where he set about learning the American way of life and the American conception of the theatre. Be- fore coming to Wellesley he di- rected at the Houston Little The- atre and taught in the Smith College drama department. He was with us for only a year, but even in this short time he made many friends on the campus. Those of us who worked with him in Barn and Theatre Workshop found in him not only a good teacher -and director but above all an inspiration as a friend. He always encouraged us in our work and daily asked, "How do you feel this morning?" in a way that showed he really wanted to know. Students and faculty in other organizations always found him eager to lend a helping hand. Even those who knew him only as the man they met in the halls of Founders and Green will remember his smile and friendly greeting. In losing Mr. Jessner we have lost a fine person who lived for the truth and for other people. His death is a great tragedy, but we consider ourselves privi- leged to have had him among us. Stassen Addresses 1946 At Graduation Ceremonies Dr. Kinsolving's Topic "Sources Of Our Vision" Minister Addresses Class Of '46 at Baccaleaureate Senior Supper Held Saturday In Alumnae Hall Married and Engaged Girls Run Traditional Marathon President Nancy Dunn, toast- mistress of the senior class sup- per held Saturday, June 15 at Alumnae Hall, called the class roll for spontaneous replies by the members of the class of '46. Former presidents of '46. Alice Dodds, Judy Atterbury, and Suz- anne Carreau, read brief his- tories of the class during their administrations, and Nancy com- pleted with the record of this year. The class cheered the traditional race of the married and engaged seniors around the tables after dinner. Marjorie H. Ilsley, Dean of the Senior Class, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry F. Schwa rz, honorary members of '-16, were guests of the seniors while President Mild- red McAfee Horton and other sts attended the dinner at Mary Hemenway for the parents of the class of '46. Following the two dinners, movies of Wellesley through the seasons were shown in Alumnae Hall. Dr. Arthur Lee Kinsolving "In this moral and spiritual crisis we must do more than wring our hands about the fate- ful development of modern events," emphasized Dr. Arthur Lee Kinsolving in his Baccalau- reate address to the graduating class Sunday morning, June 16. "In times such as these the interpreters of life are those who pray", he continued, urging that everybody, regardless ,'of reli- gious faith, seek insight into his problems by turning to God in prayer. Taking as his text John 8:12, Dr. Kinsolving attempted in his address to "seek the sources of human vision". These, he be- lieves, can be found in Jesus Christ. It is through a know- ledge of Jesus, he pointed out. that men can overcome the limi- tations of moral sensibility which makes them eager to fo- cus their judgment on others, but slow to realize that they Thrice Eleeted Minnesota Governor Backs Progressive Policy for Republican Party's Advances "Two-Year Plan" of Action Minnesota's former governor Harold E. Stassen, addressed the class of 1 946 at their commencement exercises this morning in Alumnae Hall. Mr. Stassen was selected as the commencement speaker by a vote of the Senior class, conducted a year ago. Mr. Stassen was elected gover- nor of Minnesota for three terms. When he was first elected in 1930, he was the youngest governor in the history of the state. In 1943, he gave up his office to join the United States Navy, with the rank of commander. Mr. Stassen has recently come to the fore in national politics with his 'two-year plan" for re- vitalizing the Republican Party. In an article, published in the Americati Magazine for April, 1946, he stated that the G.O.P. must work toward the formula- tion of a progressive policy. "Given an inspiring program," he wrote, "we shall have a mighty renaissance in the Republican Party, and the years ahead will see an effective, dynamic govern- ment in America, working in har- mony with a free enterprise sys- tem functioning with restored vigor." The former governor took both his undergraduate and law work at the University of Minnesota, where he was an active partici- pant in college debating, and held many offices in the college government. While at the Uni- versity, he became the first presi- dent of the Young Republican League, organized under his lead- ership. Mr. Stassen was admitted to the bar of the State of Minnesota in 1929. After he graduated from law school, he practiced law at St. Paul in co-operation with El- mer Ryan, who is now active in the Democratic party. He was elected as county attorney of Dakota County in 1930 and served in that capacity until 1938. In 1940 he was temporary chairman of the Republican Na- tional Convention, at which he delivered the keynote address At the Convention, he was se- lected to be the National Chair- man of the National Governors' Conference and Council of State Governments for 1940-'41. Harold E. Stassen themselves are often in need of being judged. Dr. Kinsolving commended Wellesley for trying "to achieve the true correlation of religion and education." 'This is essen- tial", he said, "so that the fate of the future will no longer be one of the blind leading the blind." Religious education, he pointed out, was regarded as a necessity by Jesus, and is, ac- cording to Dr. Ernest Hocking of Harvard, the "one thing need- ful in the present educational system." Through a knowledge of Jesus people of today may come to realize more fully the attainment of the enlightenment of human vision, recognizing, he said, that "in one generation after another, from St. John to Soren Kierke- gaard to Lincoln in the last cen- tury, those who had turned to him gained extraordinary vi- sion." Summer Reading Becomes Integral Part of College Education Program Choir Presents (Editors note: The folio, statement has been red from the Faculty Committi Long Term Educational Policy.) The summer reading program. begun last year on an experi- mental basis, takes its place this year as an informal though in- ii part of Wellesley's new plan for undergraduate educa- tion. Along with summer jobs and field work it serves to un- derline the fact that education is a year-round process, rather than something that can be .shut Off in June. The faculty of the College believes that serious reading is an essential su r to the work done in time, and that it should have an important place miong the sum- mer activities of all studenl only because of what it can con- tribute to course work in the winter but also because it i w.uding and enjoyable in it Students have by now received lists of books rccomnv. for general reading and books suggested by the several depart- ments for their majors. Mem- bers of the class of '49, especially, are urged to read widely fron\ the general list. The list is con- siderably longer than last yei so that there is opportunity for a good deal of choice. Since the books are non-technical in char- acter they can be read by those who have no special preparation in the various fields. Indeed, it is hoped that students will not confine theii reading to subjects they are already i d in. A ill choose at least a few books that deal with topics which they have heretofore not been interested in. While there will be no formal checking on the amount of read- ing accomplished, students will I In the Fall to indicate I they have read and to make such comments as to on the list as a whole.

Now thai the war is over, workers air no longer needed in many industries. Employers arc not. going to be happy to take on new, inexperi- enced employees, just to train them and let them go again. It is no longer a question of keeping up production at all costs. We have no doubt that Wellesley undergrad- uates will be able to find jobs of one kind or another. But we are less optimistic about find- ing ''the right job." Those of us who are in- terested in art work may not be able to step right into designing positions. And it won't be easy for all the English Composition majors to be cub reporters and copy writers for three months. During the war, jobs were a dime a dozen, for employers had to be satisfied with any methods of filling the gaps left by men and women going into the services. They were glad to have a full staff, if only for the sum- mer months. Therefore, we want first of all to urge every undergraduate to take some kind of summer job. Secondly, we hope you will not feel dis- couraged because your job has nothing to do with your future interests. For any job — whether it is waiting on table, filing, working in a factory, or running errands — will give you the same basic training. You will learn that earning money involves responsibility to an organization which is larger than yourself. You will learn how to work for and with people. Among these people you will find new friends, new attitudes, and hence a new stimulus. Therefore, if we can't all go to Europe or be assistant editors, let's not run off to the beaches to nurse our disappointments. No matter what we are doing, our work can be enlightening, broadening, interesting, and amusing, if we make it so. For you get out of any job only what you put into it. WELCOME, .52 With mingled emotion- we read in The Bos- ton Herald for Tuesday, June 11, an article which proclaimed that "graduate- of American women's colleges are exceeding men at mass suicide among this country's educated group." Oiu sympathies were >tirred by this state- ment, which comprised the lead paragraph of the article. Our thoughts of late have turned with alarming frequency to suicide, and we were cheered to discover that' we were not alone in our morbid contemplation. But we soon found that the article actually about the doctor-' dilemma over the low birth rate among college graduates] Educated men and women are "failing to replace them- si Ives." And "eastern colleges are doing rela- tively little for posterity in offspring." Our spirits soared with pride, however, when we read that Wellesley ha- taken the had among the women's college.-, with 1.52 children per gradui Vassar holds second place. At that, the Wellesley graduate with her brood of 1.52 presents a problem— at least to our mind, and we're willing to admit that our mind has been over-stimulated lately, with thoughts of self-destruction. We have figured out that .52 is to be a girl. It was a math- ematical adventure of dubious reward. Naturally, we believe all female offspring of Wellesley graduates should be forced to take the same dose as their mothers, for we have heard somewhere that this sort of thing breeds tough constitutions. But our heart goes out to .52. We think that some special arrange- ment should be made for her. By now we are convinced that we are only a fraction of what we should be. So before \\c get to., involved in our extra-curricular cal- culus we will tell you about the other nice thing we found in this article. "The marrying- est women's college in the East," says the Herald, "was found to be Wellesley, with 85 per cent." We extend our best Wishes to the graduating class. tir-ft-ir* Beyond the Campus by Sue Peiper 'J/8 The speech of British Foreign Minister Ernest Bevin before the House of Commons on Wednes- day, June 12, removed all ques- tion as to the policy Britain ex- pects to follow in the Near East. Though the British Foreign Min- ister's views clarified the British stand on the Palestinian issue, at the same time it did not offer much hope to the many displaced European Jews who have been awaiting the final verdict on en- try into Palestine. Mr. Bevin's speech was designed to answer his critics in Parliament who had condemned him for pursuing an ineffective foreign policy. His complete refusal to accept the report of the Anglo-American Committee on Palestine is bound to have tremendous effect, but it is an effect which may very well be undesirable both for the British and Americans. It is well-known, first of all, that the admittance of 100,000 Jews to Palestine — a thing which the In- quiry Committee urgently recom- mended — has become associated with American policy. Already, in August, 1945, President Truman had requested that 100000 Euro- pean Jews be immediately trans- ferred to Palestine. If the Brit- ish desired to develop further their close ties with the United States they would certainly not oppose the solution presented by the Committee. True, Britain has thus far rebelled against further- ing the cause of Jewish immigra- tion to Palestine because of the need for British troops in that area should immigration be per- mitted. The British have con- demned all along the lack of con- structive help olfered by us in case of uprisings among the Arabs and Jews in the Holy Land. Just recently, however, Secretary of State Byrnes indicated that should the report of the Pales- tine Committee be accepted by the British government, Ameri- can troops might be furnished to stand by in Palestine along with British forces there. Mr. Bevin now states that Britain is "not at all prepared" to send troops to Palestine. Con- sidering the present conditions of Arab unrest and Jewish dis- content, this is the same as say- ing that Britain does not fore- see any Jewish immigration into Palestine in the near future. Mr.. Bevin has made it quite evident that Britain must look to Arab interests at present. Whether the basic reason behind this is the need for power politics to main- tain the position of the Empire in the Near East cannot be defi- nitely ascertained. But, that the Arab group is getting by far the greatest consideration now from British sources is a point in fact. The only real compromise to this tremendous problem was offered by the Anglo-American Committee. The Zionists have long wanted a Jewish Common- wealth or State in Palestine and have insisted that the Balfour Declaration of 1917 envisaged (Continued on Page Jf) FREE PRESS "WE HAVE HEARD . . ." To the Editor: We are Wellesley Seniors. De- spite the pace of the war years, we can look back and feel thank- ful for the opportunity for a Liberal Education at Wellesley. We have recently heard of sev- eral movements, however, which are making us wonder just what is happening to the Liberal in Liberal Education. (1) We have heard that there is a movement to eliminate Float Night. (2) We have heard that there is a movement to eliminate Tree Day. (3) We have heard that there is a movement to eliminate Junior Show. (4) We have heard that there is a movement to eliminate de- partmental clubs. (5) We have heard that there is a movement to eliminate socie- ties. We repeat — we wonder just what Is happening to the Liberal in Liberal Education. In the way of being perfectly materialistic and mercenary, we point to the interviews that we have recently been having with potential employers. Almost to a man, they pass over in one easy sentence the fact that we are Wellesley students, majoring in such and such a field. Of course that is important. But what they really want to know is what have been our other activities. What experience have we had in or- ganizing activities and cooperat- ing under leadership? What have we contributed to our college community? But beyond this earthy reason for activities outside of the pure- ly academic sphere, — just why do girls come to Wellesley? Our idea may sound trite, but we sincerely believe that they are seeking to become well-rounded individuals. That's why we came! To us, a well-rounded individual does not consist of one whose interests are limited to the academic realm. And if these other activi- ties are not offered to us on cam- pus, where else are we to have the opportunity? Are we to re- vert to the very academic ivory tower from which we thought we had emerged? It has rather fre- quently been pointed out to us that Wellesley is not a technical school. How else are we to name it if we are to be limited to one kind of experience? Let's keep Wellesley a Liberal Arts college!

Mansfield, Execu- tive Secretary of the Wellesley Alumnae Association. An active program be- ginning Sunday, June 16, and lasting through Alumnae Day, June 18, was planned for the graduates, who represented the classes of '94'96, 1911-1914, and 1930-33. Members of the classes of '45 and '21, celebrating their first and twenty-fifth reunions, were also to be present, and the class of '86 hoped to have some members attend. "The reunion generally reas- sembled those of former years," said Mrs. Mansfield, "but previ- ously the activities began Fri- day and ended Monday, with Alumnae Day Saturday and class suppers Saturday evening.' Domestic difficulties, which caus- ed the postponement this year prevented the pre-war "service' of past reunions, and the grad uates made their own beds, car ried their own bags, and were served breakfast and Sunday night supper cafeteria style. Join Society Meetings Activities for the Alumnae be- gan Sunday afternoon when they joined the undergraduates in the Society Annual Meetings, and after supper the various classes held informal gatherings and memorial services. But the main event of the evening, ac- cording to Mrs. Mansfield was the informal, all-Alumnae "Step- Singing" in the Hay Outdoor Theatre. "Mimeographed sheets of old Wellesley songs were passed out," she explained, "and we also added old timers that everyone enjoys singing, such as 'Long, Long Trail,' 'Sidewalks of New York,' and 'Smiles'." Alumnae, all wearing white, led the Commencement Proces- sion Monday morning, and form- ed a double line outside of Alum- nae Hall through which the Aca- demic Procession passed. Fol- lowing buffet luncheons, a pro- gram of College speakers, led by President Mildred McAfee Horton,. spoke .on ."Wellesley College Today." Business Matters Discussed Business matters were re- served for the final day of the reunion. Following class meet- ings, the Annual Meeting was held at 10 : 30 in Alumnae Hall, and opened with reports by the Finance Committee, Executive Board, Senior Alumnae Trustee, and Alumnae Fund Committee. Elections of retiring Professors to Honorary Membership were held, while consideration of pro- posed new by-laws, elections of officers, and new business and (Continued on Page 5) McLELLAN STORES 555 Washington St. Wellesley by Polly Piatt '1,8 "Well, I was amazed. I'd for- gotten about the whole thing," said Carolyn Heilbrun '47, who was just acclaimed this years winner of the Atlantic Monthly short story contest. When Kaki blew home in New- ton Center on The Day, Miss Prentiss had already called. Kaki called back "with trepi- dation." Miss Prentiss was "ec- static." Out of 371 stories, Kaki of her Comp 302 class had come through with the prize. Anoth- er of her students, Vicki de Sherbinin, won an honorable mention for an essay. Twelve essays and poems from Wellesley received honorable mention or high merit. One of these was also donated by Kaki, who wants to stress that her prize story will be printed in the supplement rather than in the magazine. Kaki is convinced that "the nicest result of the prize would be a job on the Atlantic, fol- lowing in the steps of Sue Kuehn '47, who won the Mademoiselle contest two years ago." Kaki was an energetic employee of the New York Post. During the invasion of France, she groped her way into the office at 3 a.m., to put out an extra. Last sum- mer she worked on Common Sense, a "magazine of opinion which has just gone out of busi- ness." Her secret of success, Kaki confided, is marriage. She and her husband plan to add to their photographic equipment with the $50 prize. "Everybody seems to think that marriage and col- lege are mutually antagonistic," said Kaki, "and it's NOT true!"

It will be found that some are classical ex- pressions of great ideas in the field, pivotal works that have greatly influenced the develop- ment of the subject. Others are broader supplementary works which should help the student see how certain ideas and re- sults in the field have influenced general cultural patterns, or which show broad relations to other fields of human activity. Still others are intended to give students some idea of work done in fields within the major in which they have elected no courses. Here, also, no formal report on the reading will be required, but the students will find that acquaintance with some (Continued on Page 6) Congratulations Class of '46! We're not forgetting you!

Although most of them are going to Europe to do recon- struction work, two are going to China for "pure pleasure." Cathy LeFevre '48 and Nancy Bishop '48 who have just left college in a big hurry to get a ship before the maritime strike, say they have "never had so much mess and confusion get- ting ready to do anything." Cathy, whose family returned to their home in Shanghai the first of the year, says, "My moth- er seems to have left this coun- try with nothing but a tooth- brush, because she is making me bring trunks and trunks of junk over to her. You can't buy many things in C h i n a — especially drugs — so I am bringing over enough toothpaste and Kleenex to last for a year. The only trouble is that you have to make everything look used so the Chi- nese customs officials won't con- fiscate it." "And don't think we haven't been having fun squeezing toothpaste all over the place so our two dozen tubes look used," put in Bish. "Also, we're sup- posed to pick up two cases of Bourbon in Panama and I hate to think what's going to happen if we have to make them look used too." Experimental Group Jean de Beer '47 says she is going over to Dieppe with an international experimental group to take care of French war or- phans between 10 and 16 years of age. "We're going to live at the most beautiful estate and watering place in Dieppe — that is, it was the most beautiful place until it was bombed. We're going to live in the debris and sleep in sleeping bags and live off ten-and-one rations." "The object of the experi- ment," explained Jean, "is to re- lieve the French government of the care of these orphans and to try to overcome some of the bitterness against Americans over there, especially in Nor- mandy. We'll take all our equip- §WSfe" Mary Alice Ross ment and food, and we'll do re- construction work as well as play games with the children all summer." Mary Alice Ross '47 is going to England and the . continent with the International Students Service, whose purpose is to promote better understanding among students all over the world. "First" says Rossie, "all twenty-five of us go to Cam- bridge for a week where we will discuss international university problems, and then we go to different countries of our choice. I'm going to France where, in- cidentally, I hope to be able to get together with Jeannie de Beer. Then we all meet in Gen- eva to talk about and compare all the things we've seen. After that, I'm going to Prague to sit in on the deliberations of the United States Student Assem- bly group there." The purpose of this particular project, she explained, is to help to get the foreign universities back on their feet and give them some new ideas. Care of French Orphans Dot Winchell, one of the grad- uating seniors, is also going over to France to aid in the care of war orphans.

The Arabs, on the other hand, have said that this was a false reading of the mandate. The Arab-Jewish rival- ries led to Civil War in Pales- tine in 1939. The upshot of this was the issuance of a British White Paper which restricted Jewish immigration to 75,000 over a five-year period, immigra- tion thereafter to be allowed only with Arab consent. The White Paper deepened the desperation of Jews driven from Germany or facing certain death in Nazi Europe. Of Europe's pre- war Jewish population of 6,500,- 000, only 1,350,000 survive of which 500,000 are "stateless." When the report of the Anglo- American Committee was first re- ceived, Prime Minister Atlee gave the British point of view that no action could be taken un- til he could "ascertain to what extent the United States will be prepared to share the resulting additional military and financial responsibilities." Atlee also requested that il- legal Jewish armies in Palestine be disbanded before any entry was allowed. But, the most re- cent statement made by Britain's Foreign Minister pushes the issue aside, and seems to leave no possibility of Jewish immigra- tion into Palestine even if the United States does co-operate with Great Britain. The issues at hand have not been eased by Mr. Bevin's decla- ration. On the contrary, there is now no solution in sight for pro- viding a home for displaced Jews of Europe. If the Arabs are heartened by this newest develop- ment, the Zionists and other Pal- estinian Jews will certainly not be. And we can no doubt look for still greater disturbances among Jewish enthusiasts in the Holy Land. Nor will advocates of Anglo-American umty be given much encouragement if the Tel.

Wed., 9 A.M.-l PM. 330 Weston Rd., Wellesley According to Jean C. Leslie '44, the "SS Wellesley Victory" has just returned from a trip to Trieste where it deposited some supplies for UNRRA. This trip was the biggest thing that ever happened to the "Wellesley" for it saw very little wartime ac- tion. While in Trieste, according to the Chief Engineer, R. E. Hum- phries, the crew saw much ex- citement in the form of Tito demonstrations, rode in gondo- las and listened to Italian work- men singing on the roads. The "Wellesley" is a fairly large ship which, according to Miss Leslie, "looks very large when you stand on the bridge and look down into the hold where the cargoes are stored. "Naturally, like all sailing men," she continued, "the offi- cers and crew of the Wellesley Victory think she is the fastest, cleanest, best and most impor- tant ship in the merchant fleet." Although the ship carried ten guns during the war, she is now being stripped of all her mounts. Right now the ship is waiting in Norfolk harbor with hundreds of other ships and hoping that she will not be sent to the "Bone- yard" in the James River where Navy and merchant ships are being laid up. The men on the ship are beginning to doubt if they can keep her from that fate much longer. On the ship there is a library, donated by Wellesley alumnae, which is established in a closet made from an engineer's tool room. According to the cap- tain, the men have really en- joyed the books. On the door there is a plaque which explains who donated the books. The captain says he has heard regu- larly from the college and by now he feels really acquainted with us. British continue along this line so divergent from American aims Mr. Bevin did not mince words. The result is to erase with one stroke much of the progress made thus far in solving the Jewish immigration problem. The home- less of Europe have perhaps the most urgent reason for saying at this point "Where do we go from here?" Free Press— (Continued from Page 2) To the Editor of the Wellesley College News: We are very tired of people who get married at the end of Junior year, and we think that Wellesley should make a law against same. If they get mar- ried at the end of Senior year, then we can use our graduation money to buy presents for them. But as it now stands, we are absolutely tied down with ex- penditures unless Uncle Joe dies and leaves us his watch fob to take to the Pawn shop. We are tired of going to show- ers and standing in a circle. At the last shower we went to we found out that we were going to have two boys and a girl. At the shower before we weren't going to have any children at all, because all the presents were tied together with one long ribbon.

IBS with member colleges of the east and west coast, as well as McGill University in Canada, functions as the headquarters for the exchange of scripts and technical ideas. Some day IBS hopes to have a physical set up that will enable the exchange of programs. The central office handles the national advertising for its members, takes care of music rights, and offers techni- cal aid and assistance. The conference consisted of several panel discussions includ- ing "Studio Planning" and "What College Audiences Want." According to a survey college students are most interested in classical music and news. The Governing Council meeting on Sunday considered financial prob- lems, the summer program and the possibility of international exchanges. Pome The following is culled from the 1919 Commencement issue of the Wellesley College News. It seemed appropriate. REGRETS Oh College is an easy life, I hate to leave. I eat and sleep and read and dream And never grieve. Why must I leave this luxury, This life of ease? Why here we even graduate By degrees! Besides, if we go to showers, we eat so much that we don't think we need any dinner. But at nine o'clock we get hungry again and find we have to go to the Well. And if we go to the Well, someone counts us as the 2086th girl who has walked in that day, and we have to read letters about saving our money. All of which adds up to the fact that marriage doesn't save any- body any money— except possibly the parents of the girl in ques- tion, because 9 times out of 10 she won't be back next year. And that isn't so good either, because she has borrowed everything we own, and will probably take our last ten bobby pins on her honey- moon with her.

Best Wishes from Alexander Shoe Repair WELLESLEY COLLEGE NEWS, JUNE 15, 1946 No End of Four Belgian University Presidents Food Crisis See Campus, Meet Student Officers Yet in Sight Members of '46 Organizations Plan to Teach, Elect Officers "Wellesley can do more than support the voluntary food con- servation program," said Miss Dorothy K. Clark, Research as- sistant to the Historian of U. N. R. R. A., in a letter to Mrs. T. R. Covey, College Dietician. Miss Clark, a graduate of Wellesley in 1929, emphasizes the fact that the voluntary program can meet but a part of the tremendous food requirements of starving Europe, and that an informed and aroused public opinion is vi- tally needed. According to Miss Clark, the present European situation indi- cates that on May 1, Greece will have only enough grain for two week's bread rations, while Italy, Poland, and Yugoslavia will have but one week's supply. Pur- chasing agencies of foreign gov- ernments are able to buy only such food as is available in the market, she explains, and every additional bushel of wheat and ounce of fat which appears in the market literally means life to someone. To help meet the great need, Wellesley is cooperating with the voluntary program in reducing the servings of fats and wheat foods. Students are being served smaller muffins, less pastry and cake, fewer wheat cereals, no deep fat fried foods, and the col- lege is cutting its purchase of white bread. "There is at present a 20 per- cent cut in wheat servings," says Mrs. Covey, College Dieti- cian, "but we would like to make it 25 percent." She points out the fact expressed in the Boston Herald of April 26th, that wheat in storage throughout the coun- try is at its lowest level since 1938, and that current exports are lagging sharply behind goals set in the world famine relief program. Nor will the vital need for food end with the summer har- vest, added Miss Clark. She quotes Mr. Herbert Lehman, re- tired head of UNRRA, as saying that we cannot count on improve- ment in the situation next win- tor, which may, in fact, be even worse than the present crisis. Miss Clai-k feels, however, that possible catastrophe can be avoided if people in this coun- try make it their business to re- main constantly aware of the acuteness of the problem, and do all in their power to alleviate the situation. "We here at Wellesley are complying with government reg- ulations," says Mrs. Covey, "but with student aid we could do a lot more." o Alumnae Reunion— (Continued frot7i Page 3) announcements brought the meeting to a close. "An Alumnae Luncheon was the final event of this first re- union since 1942," said Mrs. Mansfield. Speakers included graduates of '94, '95, '96. and 1921, who extended greetings from the 50th and 25th year class.

ContinueStudies by Joan Wickwire '^8 According to the Placement Of- fice, most of our graduating seniors who have definite jobs for the future are planning to work as teachers or assistants in schools and universities. The next largest group is going to absorb more knowledge by doing graduate work in universities or research work for various organ- izations and companies. "The keynote for this year's graduating class," explained Mrs. Bishop of the Placement Office, "seems to be that of great uncer- tainty. This is a transition year after the war, and consequently many of the girls, especially those who are getting married, don't know where they are going to be in the future and therefore cannot get definite jobs." She also said that while most of the seniors do want jobs, they do not want them right away but wish to have a couple of months' vacation first. "Then of course," Mrs. Bishop continued, "there is the additional difficulty this year of finding a place to live after you've got the job." Nancy Dunn, president of the Senior Class, declared that forty-five seniors will be getting married shortly after they grad- uate. "Some of them are going to work, though," said Monkey, "Jean Harris will teach French at the Windsor School in Boston while her husband goes to Har- vard Med." Mac Cullen, former Editor-in- Chief of News has a job doing feature writing for Scholastic Magazine in New York. "And what's more,' she exclaimed, "I actually have a place to live!" Scotty Campbell, whose father is in the Army in Germany, is going over to Heidelberg to live Scotty, however, is one of those seniors who is uncertain about jobs because she says she does not have the "vaguest idea" what she is going to do once she gets there." According to Nancy Forthoffer, she and Eleanor Recksteiner have been accepted as students in the Management Training Program Dance Group, Cosmopolitan Club, and Classical Club have an- nounced their new officers for the coming year. Robin Muchmore '47, will head Dance group, now an independent organization and no longer part of A.A. Marty Ritvo "48, will be Vice President; Mickey Weisman '49, Secretary; Ruth Kulakofsky '48, Treasurer; and Marie Russell '48, Custodian. Cosmopolitan Club recently elected the following officers: President, June Parker '47; Vice President, Margaret Holmes "47; Secretary, Betty Blue "49; Treas- urer, Phyllis Wong '49. New officers of the Classical Club are President Phyllis Wend- over '47; Vice President, Sara Smith '48; Secretary-Treasurer, Carol Warner '48. Miss Charlotte Goodfellow is Faculty Advisor for the group. at Radcliffe. "It's a ten-months course," she explained, "whose purpose is to provide many train- ed management and personnel administrators to help avoid, in the future, situations like the present labor crisis." Jane Goodman, President of the Alliance Francaise, says she will study at the Latin American Institute in New York for the summer and then hopes "to get some interesting job down in South America. "Or maybe," she added hopefully, "I'll be able to get over to France to do recon- struction work." Awarded a scholarship at Rad- cliffe, Ida Harrison says she is going to do graduate work in mathematics arid then "either teach math or get my PhD." Miss Bishop expla/ned that a large number of students wanted jobs working overseas but, she said, "There is a great difficulty in getting them because transpor- tation arrangements are so diffi- cult to make." The only definite possibilities for going overseas, stated Miss Bishop, are for those students who wish to go to Switzerland to study. Engaged Betty Evans -IT. lo thi Thomas G.

Today, Bones and I decided that since it was our last Sat- urday here, we'd watch the sun rise over (he Rec Building. She was very wide-awake and cheer- ful when I got up at about 4:30, because she's been up all night playing off her final bridge- match. You see, Bones feels that during exams she should recre- ate five minutes every half hour, and somehow last night her rec- reation time piled up. I was very happy as the sun came up for all my exams are over. I had six in three days last week. But I want to stay around here until Bones goes home, just so I won't miss anything. Really, I've enjoyed exam week very much. Recently I've come to know everyone in the house so well. There's one very inter- esting girl who lives in our hall. She sleeps in the day and works all night. It's very soothing to hear the pitter-pat of her type- writer as we fall asleep at mid- night. Lately I've been eating ravioli with her at two o'clock and discussing the labor problem. But today they took her off to the infirmary, and Bones and I are very lonely. Speaking of getting to know people, one senior in the house, who never noticed us all year long, spoke to us the other day. That means she's noticing us at last, and according to my Psych book that's a good sign. Bones and I were very flattered even though she didn't say very much. She said, "Shut up, I'm trying to sleep." I can hardly imagine that we have finished another year. Bones and I were looking back over everything and we decided we'd become broadened. We've enlarged our personalities, and we've learned that the most im- portant thing is to BE SIN- CERE. Nothing else matters. Bones hates hypocrites. But she carries her ideas a little too far. The other day she took the doorknob off our house-mother's room, because she told us we couldn't store our parrot for the summer. Poor Miss Albatros. She couldn't get out of the room, and no one else could get in. Bones is repenting now. She thinks she ought to try the win- dow. We are laughing over the time that the Belgian educators were here, and everyone got so dressed up. (We rolled our blue- jeans up under our skirts, which is good for Bones, because she hates conventionalities.) We in the Well that afternoon in our shorts after playing ten- nis when they came in. That wouldn't have been so bad, ex- cept that Bones had just that minute put a nickel in "Cement- Mixer". All the seniors look very happy lately, as they ride about in their jeeps and convertibles. I guess they're looking ahead to life, and thinking about the long, lazy days of the summer. I'm looking forward to the summer too, but I don't think the days will be Bones and I have become quite inspired by the little or- loldVr the Placement Office ns about summer work.

Good Luck First to Major In Drama Here Bu Roberta Loicitz 'J/8 "How I'm a Wellesley drama major is a mystery to me," said Tink Martin '46, "I came here to major in drama, found that there was no such thing, got excited, circulated positions about why Wellesley should have drama ma- jors, and ended up dramatic." Tink, alias Mrs. Jay Martin Jr., was recently busy writing Smudge, a play about forest fire fighting. She enlisted the aid of the State Department of Conser- vation, which became so enthralled with her idea that they are ser- iously considering backing the production as a means of instruc- tion in fire safety. Since her freshman year, Tink has been active in Barn and Theater Workshop. Last year she was head of Lighting for Barn and recently she produced Chek- hov's The Boors for the Work- shop. In her sophomore year her direction of Gilbert and Sullivan's Trial by Jxiry, in which she took the part of Edwin, was so suc- cessful that a command perform- ance was given for the Navy who were then inhabiting Caz and Pom. Tink can relate drama to al- most everything. "My ambition in life is to show my engineer husband that there is something else in life besides turbines," she said. To accomplish this end, Tink wants to start Little Theater groups every where that she and Jay live. She believes that there is no better way to relax, meet people, and become aware of current thought than through dramatic work. Tink has other talents besides writing and acting in plays. She sings — even though her childhood friends questioned it — she plays the piano, dances, sails, figure skates, draws lopsided ducks, and consumes gallons of coffee. A budding dramatist since her early childhood when she wrote and produced puppet shows, Tink was active in high school dramatics playing the part of Tessa in the ''Gondoliers" in her senior year. Happy Lawn Reformatory for the month of June. I would be in charge of teaching ten year old girls to hoe potatoes. Bones wants to work in the county jail. Her mother was very disturbed the other day, and wrote a letter telling her to come right straight home. I guess she doesn't under- stand, that we feel we've been living in an "ivory tower" too long. We must put our dreams to work! We've been reading de- tective comics every night to give us background. I can hardly wait to see you Thursday. Bones says I can ride her scooter bike home. She wants to hitch-hike to Mexico, now, to see life. I will see you soon. Love, Agnes WAYSIDE INN Chatham, Mass.

"We are placing girls in Con- gress, in the Republican Na- tional Committee Office, and in New York positions for the first time since the program started," she explained. Ten girls will be working in agencies or organizations con- nected with government work from June 19 to July 31 as a part of the program. "Of course if there is mutual consent on the part of the girl and her em- ployer that she stay longer, that is fine," stated Mrs. Houghteling. Seven of the internes are working in Washington. Ruth Goldman '47 will assist Senator Elbert Thomas of Utah, and Lor- raine Cohen will be working for Representative Chase Going Wood house, a former professor of political science at Connecticut College for Women. "Their job will probably be research work, answering mail, attending com- mittee hearings and writing up summaries for the Congress- men," stated Mrs. Houghteling. "Most of the jobs that are suit- able for college girls are re- search and public relations work," she explained. The third New York job is be- ing filled by Marilyn Karp '47, who will work for the Youth Division of the Democratic State Committee. In Washington Adele Rogerson '47 will be in the Re- publican National Committee Office, Sigrid Robinson '47 at the Institute for Pacific Relations, and Betty Ball '47 at the Na- tional League of Women Voters' Office. Joan Brailey '47 will do research for the educational pro- gram of the International Broth- erhood of Pulp, Sulphite, and Paper Mill Workers of America (A. F. of L.i "Even this year with veterans returning and -government try- ing to consolidate and reduce unemployment, there were many positions available" stated Mrs. Houghteling. She stressed the fact that the program was open to any juniors and seniors who were interested "and they don't have to worry about housing" she pointed out. "The Wellesley Club in Washington places the girls in rooms, unless they hap- pen to be as lucky as Joan Brailey and Sigrid Robinson who will use Congressman Judd's home this summer while he is away."

The purpose of our trip is to repair the hostel buildings and also the routes as we go along." The group is leaving on June 14 on the Ernie Pyle.
